FNjeep Gotta' Agree with YJman.
Take your rig to a trusted Mechanic.

Brakes are one thing I don't want to experience catastrophic failure on the trail. Check your E-Brake tension as well.

YJman I'd start off by bringing it to your local mechanic and getting his opinion on it.

Lwolf25 So do you guys think I should just buy new pads and rotors

mrmzchiefus Yes, if the brakes aren't new then by all means have them checked/replaced. If they are new and whoever installed them may have went for a cheaper shoe which could cause that problem and sometimes even cause a groaning problem with it. Another possibility is an axle seal went and you have oil on the shoes, which believe it or not will cause the wheels to lock up.

sounds scary, dont break your axle go to a brake place and get your brakes serviced.

NHrubicon bleeding the brakes isn't going to help...when was the last time you had new pads/rotors done on it? Once they wear down too far they will 'grab' instead of 'slide' and you can cause more damage...
